Schiit DACs (Bifrost and Gungnir down, one to go)? The information and anticipation thread. - Page 109

grokit, just noting the number of posts you've got and the date you joined works out to over 10 posts a day, on average, for two years.

 

Dang.  :-)

 

Apologies for the OT, everyone, back to your regularly scheduled thread....

Using the stock feet for separation, the bifrost does not get hot until it is turned on.(pun not intended)

I posted 9 times in my first 3 1/2 years, and lurked about 18 months before that. Found more to say in the last 6 months - since the LCD2 - but expect to drop back to a few per year soon.

 

Now back to our regular programming...

And the anticipation of what you are about to reveal is maddening! popcorn.gif

You're right - there are a few clear differences in emphasis, and a lot that is the same to my ears. There's no point analyzing to the n-th degree. The harder it is to hear something, the more likely it would be lost in the much bigger differences between peoples' ears anyway!

 

(A holdup has been some problems my wife persuaded me to sort out in her department - some days have been 12 hours, and not easy ones either eek.gif)

 

Want to double-check some things, briefly bring in the Stax and Lyr (I'll roll back to stock GE6BZ7s I think) and do a little longer listening before I write up.

 

All being well, part 1 MiniMax vs Bifrost in about 8 hours. Part 2 StageDac vs Bifrost is 2-3 days away.

What's your point?

 

Do you have anything to say about the content of my posts?

 

Is this an example of a wasted post or is yours?

Sensitive much? wink_face.gif

 

 

Oh...and I'm just padding my post count.

I wonder if Jason will provide an update on when the product announcements will be made since there will be no pre-order process this time around?  I am guessing that the Statement amp and Dac wont ship until close to June 2012 at this stage given that Bifrost USB was approx 2 months late of original plan and that the intermediate Dac and amp have to fit in between.

 

The Lyr Bifrost combo is so great that I am now longing for even more power for my HE6.  Who would have thought that 6 watts wasnt really enough!!!  gs1000.gif

It would also be interesting (for me in particular, but I'm sure for others as well) if you could briefly test Stagedac > Concerto > T1 vs. Bifrost > Lyr > T1. I'm about to pull the trigger on a T1 any second, just curious what I'd miss/gain if I had chosen the Schiit path.

post #1630 of 3320


Sure, in fact that will be a good comparison to make using the T1, as it's quite a different phone from the rev 1 LCD2.

I'm looking forward to the annoucement as well. It won't be soon, because of all the complainers... Jason will be much more conservative now about annoucements. I think if they just made a balanced Lyr it would be pretty powerful no? That would double the power, just because it's balanced, so 12 watts into 32ohms? and 8 watts into 50ohms? WOW... I hope something like this comes out...atsmile.gif

In the meantime, you might consider occupying yourself while you wait by experimenting with vintage speaker amps.

Bifrost really pairs well with Asgard, Asgard being on the warm and mellow side and the Bifrost being on the slightly bright and lively side, it balances each other out in a good way.

Hi AiDee! Thanks very much for that. Just wanted to add that I didnt mean to rush you but had wanted to add on to the exciting atmosphere of anticipation for your MiniMax and BiFrost shoot out :) I too agree that a proper review takes many good long sessions of proper listening. Wishing you tons of fun while doing it, which normally happens after we've unwound from all the important stuff we need to do.

Didn't skylab plan on writing a review of the bifrost???
